The club frequency board is missing the 2.4 #3 pin, please check and see if you might have packed it up by mistake.

Thanks.

Pretty good article. http://www.flyrc.com/500407

He's talking about me a few times. I did have my record flight without crashing last week. Second flight my slow stick hit flight box 1.

Maybe I'm behind the times. I had no idea they used DC-10's for this purpose.

Yes, about the last 3 seasons, we just didn't need them in AZ until now. Evergreen has a 747 in Marana that is supposed to drop as well.


I went to high school with the woman that wrote the story above on azfamily.com.

Small world

I wonder if they need me to bring my AT-802 Air Tractor in for a few drops.... I need to put the LG back on it but she could be ready for the weekend!

A guy at my office also mentioned they are using P-3's.


I always thought they used C-130's.

Come to think of it. Sounds like another commercial use for UAV.
